This tutorial targets the event trace feature running on the hardware board that allows you to understand how the design is executed on hardware. With support from the Vitis analyzer, you can view the function calls, stalls (both execution and memory), and the flow of execution in the AI Engine. This information is helpful to improve the overall design performance. The steps within this tutorial introduce the event trace compilation options, running the design on hardware to generate event trace with XSDB and XRT flows, collect the generated event trace data, and launch the Vitis_analyzer to review the design execution on hardware.

Before starting this tutorial:

  • It is expected that you cloned the git repository, and the design files are ready to build.

  • It is expected that you have run the steps to set the environment variables as described in Introduction.
